  • [Chat] Big Thunder Mountain Railroad Refurbishment - Linked to new Depp film?

    So I was watching Man of Steel earlier today when the trailer for The Lone Ranger popped up. During the trailer there is a short scene where a train goes off the rails and it reminded me of Big Thunder and then it hit me, is the ride being refurbished due to the new film? The Pirates of the Caribbean ride changed after the release of the film, and I won't be surprised if Disney adds The Lone Ranger elements to this ride.

    If they are including aspects from The Lone Ranger in a refurb before the movie even comes out then Disney has really lost their minds. I highly doubt it.

      Hmmmm.... very interesting; however, I really don't think (I bet Johnny would not either) that there should be any link between Thunder Mountain and this film.

          I hope not, we already have too much Depp in the park.

            I suspect that there could be some subtile references to the movie in much the same way there is a reference to the Tiki Room in BTMR at WDW from the latest refurb.

            If the movie is a big hit, they could still add more obvious details at a later day.

              Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is still popular as it is. Adding movie tie-ins would be very unnecessary.

                Highly doubt it.

                    This is a new one for me - do tell us more? I am curious how they'd sneak a Tiki Room reference into BTMRR.

                      Since when has that stopped them before? :lol:

                      I certainly hope they aren't, though.

                        I really don't think that Disney is going to do that. The Lone Ranger is "brand new" to this generation, and even if they did a movie tie in with the refurbishment, a lot of people wouldn't get it. I think that Big Thunder Mountain needed to be refurbished, and just made to look fresh again, but I would hate to see it ruined by a tie in to a movie that might not even be successful (Disney doesn't know either way yet).

                            At most we would see a temporary movie poster/s around the construction site on the walls since the move would be coming out in July and BTMRR is reopening in September/October. Don't expect a limited time magic for the move because they have one for the first week of July already. And no the movie will most likely be released in November for Xmas.

                            (Limited Time Magic: July 1st-7th Independence Week (4th of July fireworks all week instead of the usual 3 days.))

                              Yes, please, do elucidate! I'm trying to figure this one out too!
